Penetration: The Future Is Female

Jon Savage, Sounds, 17 December 1977

ACCELERATION DON'T go to my head...London – a module, self-contained, trapped in an ever-accelerating time/style warp: a week seems like a month in our brave new world. Attitudes/reputations change in weeks, dissolve in days...Repetition, decreasing circles so close to the media encourage quick boredom, instant cliche...no doubt fun for the participants but to the outside...well, confusing...
